All must fall

(Letters of J. C. Philpot)

I feel so many evils daily, and sometimes hourly,
working in my heart, and see so many traps and
snares laid for my feet in every direction, that my
wonder is
, not that any fall--but that any stand!

No, I am confident that all must fall were it not
for everlasting love and almighty power, "kept by
the power of God through faith unto salvation!"

"Hold me up, and I shall be safe!" Psalm 119:117
